Performance on ICI Self-Cancellation in FFT-OFDM and DCT-OFDM System Mon, 05 Oct 2015 08:58:37 +0000 In orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system, the existence of frequency offset in AWGN channel affects the orthogonality among the subcarriers and consequently introduces the intercarrier interference (ICI). The paper investigates new ICI self-cancellation technique to mitigate the effect of ICI in FFT-OFDM and compares it to DCT based OFDM system in terms of bit error rate (BER) and carrier to interference ratio (CIR). The proposed method for group size three results in a significant 20 dB improved CIR in FFT-OFDM. In terms of BER, proposed ICI self-cancellation technique outperforms the other self-cancellation techniques in FFT-OFDM. Also, this paper investigates outperforming BER and CIR improvement by using DCT-OFDM without applying self-cancellation techniques, due to its energy compaction property.

On Uniform Convergence of Sequences and Series of Fuzzy-Valued Functions Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:50:45 +0000 The class of membership functions is restricted to trapezoidal one, as it is general enough and widely used. In the present paper since the utilization of Zadeh’s extension principle is quite difficult in practice, we prefer the idea of level sets in order to construct for a fuzzy-valued function via related trapezoidal membership function. We derive uniform convergence of fuzzy-valued function sequences and series with some illustrated examples. Also we study Hukuhara differentiation and Henstock integration of a fuzzy-valued function with some necessary inclusions. Furthermore, we introduce the power series with fuzzy coefficients and define the radius of convergence of power series. Finally, by using the notions of H-differentiation and radius of convergence we examine the relationship between term by term H-differentiation and uniform convergence of fuzzy-valued function series.

Fourier Expansions with Polynomial Terms for Random Processes Thu, 01 Oct 2015 08:40:49 +0000 Based on calculus of random processes, we present a kind of Fourier expansions with simple polynomial terms via our decomposition method of random processes. Using our method, the expectations and variances of the corresponding coefficients decay fast and partial sum approximations attain the best approximation order. Moreover, since we remove boundary effect in our decomposition of random process, these coefficients can discover the instinct frequency information of this random process. Therefore, our method has an obvious advantage over traditional Fourier expansion. These results are also new for deterministic functions. Zhihua Zhang Copyright © 2015 Zhihua Zhang.

On the Classical Paranormed Sequence Spaces and Related Duals over the Non-Newtonian Complex Field Thu, 01 Oct 2015 08:29:31 +0000 The studies on sequence spaces were extended by using the notion of associated multiplier sequences. A multiplier sequence can be used to accelerate the convergence of the sequences in some spaces. In some sense, it can be viewed as a catalyst, which is used to accelerate the process of chemical reaction. Sometimes the associated multiplier sequence delays the rate of convergence of a sequence. In the present paper, the classical paranormed sequence spaces have been introduced and proved that the spaces are -complete. By using the notion of multiplier sequence, the α-, β-, and γ-duals of certain paranormed spaces have been computed and their basis has been constructed.

The Characterization and Stability of g-Riesz Frames for Super Hilbert Space Wed, 30 Sep 2015 09:19:09 +0000 G-frames and g-Riesz frames as generalized frames in Hilbert spaces have been studied by many authors in recent years. The super Hilbert space has a certain advantage compared with the Hilbert space in the field of studying quantum mechanics. In this paper, for super Hilbert space , the definitions of a g-Riesz frame and minimal g-complete are put forward; also a characterization of g-Riesz frames is obtained. In particular, we generalize them to general super Hilbert space . Finally, a conclusion of the stability of a g-Riesz frame for the super Hilbert space is given.

On Approximate Controllability of Second-Order Neutral Partial Stochastic Functional Integrodifferential Inclusions with Infinite Delay and Impulsive Effects Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:23:40 +0000 We discuss the approximate controllability of second-order impulsive neutral partial stochastic functional integrodifferential inclusions with infinite delay under the assumptions that the corresponding linear system is approximately controllable. Using the fixed point strategy, stochastic analysis, and properties of the cosine family of bounded linear operators combined with approximation techniques, a new set of sufficient conditions for approximate controllability of the second-order impulsive partial stochastic integrodifferential systems are formulated and proved. The results in this paper are generalization and continuation of the recent results on this issue. An example is provided to show the application of our result.

Gain of Regularity in Extension Problem on Convex Domains Tue, 21 Jul 2015 08:18:10 +0000 We investigate the extension problem from higher codimensional linear subvarieties on convex domains of finite type. We prove that there exists a constant such that on Bergman spaces with there appears the so-called “gain regularity.” The constant depends on the minimum of the dimension and the codimension of the subvariety. This means that the space of functions which admit an extension to a function in the Bergman space is strictly larger than , where is a subvariety. M. Jasiczak Copyright © 2015 M. Jasiczak.
